Update

I still have neck pain that is keeping me from lifting because I don't want to make it worse. Considering this is how I injured it to begin with I think it's the right choice.

I've been eating OK, and in fact I'm trying to dial my eating in more than usual since I'm not getting the workouts in.

I rode my bike to work on Friday, and for a short ride over the weekend, but once again, the neck is an issue and I'm afraid that whatever I do will make it worse.

So really, all I feel like I can do right now it monitor my food intake and try to maintain. It's pretty frustrating because I'd much rather be exercising.

That's all I've got right now. Hopefully someone soon I can get active again and maybe even set some fitness goals.

you definitely don't want to mess with a neck injury. Hopefully it will heal up quickly and you can get back at it soon. Really focusing on the diet and resting the neck is the best thing you can be doing.

You might want to invest in a foam roller. They are really great for getting those kinks and muscle tightness worked out. And they're pretty cheap. I use mine all the time and it works wonders when I can't get to the chiropractor.

Dude, sorry to hear about your neck, that really sucks. A good buddy of mine jacked up his shoulder about two months ago from sloppy lifting, and it's still giving him fits.
